I managed to unearth this tidbit (from whitegum.com):

"There are two accounts of the origins of this song, both of which may be true. One is that it is about Rolling Thunder, the Indian Shaman, conducting a ceremony (which certainly fits with many of the lyrics). The other is that it was written by Donna in memory of Rex Jackson, one of the Grateful Dead's crew (after whom the Rex Foundation is named)."

I think she did for awhilebut got better. McDowell hasn't come up yet, in late April... 1st night looks good... Michael Franti, Hot Tuna & NRPS... Only act of interest for me 2nd night would be Railroad Earth...

Hope you are well Earl! Saw you running on one of the threads. Was that a cop chasing you?
